Each year, on the eve of the Pro Bowl, USA Today releases its All-Joe Team, celebrating "first-rate players who receive second-rate recognition."
Only players who have never been named to the Pro Bowl during their careers are eligible for a place on the All-Joe Team. USA Today displayed a keen eye for deserving players by recognizing Sean Lee and Laurent Robinson with nominations to the All-Joe Team.
Laurent Robinson is recognized for coming out of nowhere for an injured Miles Austin and scoring 11 touchdowns in 2011 after scoring only four in his previous four NFL seasons.
Sean Lee gets the nod as "arguably the best pass defender among NFL backers". Lee notched four interceptions last year and also amassed a team-leading 105 tackles despite playing the second half of the season with a cast on his injured wrist.
